Egypt Alexandria city

A fascinating full-day private tour from Cairo to the port city of Alexandria, often referred to as the 'Pearl of the Mediterranean' with a rich Greek and Roman heritage. Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC, Alexandria was the capital of Greco-Roman Egypt and a centre for learning in the ancient world. Its legendary Lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the World and the city was also the setting for the fiery relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Anthony.

As you explore this vibrant city with your private guide you will discover some of Alexandria's most famous sights including Pompey’s Pillar, an 82-foot tall column carved from red Aswan granite and erected in honour of Emperor Diocletian. View the ancient Roman ampitheatre which dates from the Second Century and then continue to the Greco-Roman Museum which houses an amazing assortment of mummies, sarcophagi and statues.
